Now, about the 99 Red Balloons, a friend gave me a movie called "The Red Balloon" recently. It is a short French film about a boy who was "adopted" by a balloon. I wonder if the two things are related.

I've seen that movie, though I can't remember where or when or under what circumstances. Maybe it was in a French class.

The song is not connected to the movie.

Before the group became famous, Nena went to a concert in their homeland of West Berlin, to see the Rolling Stones.   At one point in the show, helium balloons were released.   Nena member Carlo Karges imagined the balloons going over the Berlin wall into East Germany, and being picked up on radar, and mistaken as an attack, and the result is World War III.

The original German "99 Luftballons" translates to English as 99 Balloons.  The record company hired someone to write a "poetic English" version of the song, and the title became "99 Red Balloons".

A dark day indeed.

Why am I not surprised?   :laugh:

Hey BBP, give me your opinion on this one.   Nena recently paired up  with Dave Stewart (of Eurythmics) and together they've released the song "Be My Rebel".   Sounds  pretty different from "99 Luftballons".

lmao!

The question was on the song, not Nena's appearance.   :laugh:

Near this date (today 3/28/18, historical date, 3/3/84)  34 years ago, this song  was #2 on the Billboard Hot 100.

;D

I played that new Nena song for a few of my friends, and they liked it.

New music for you to check out.  Z100 was talking about the lack of female acts at the upcoming  lollapalooza show.  They then played this song, "Get Out" by female led act Chvrches (churches).  Very cool sounding!
